Henlow seconds maintained leadership of the Millman Saturday Three with derby victory over Langford.

Opener Frank Simpson scored 89 as Langford totalled 190 all out, Merrick Baltruschat taking 4-39 in seven overs and Wayne Bilcock 3-8 in 3.2 overs.

Baltruschat then finished unbeaten six short of a century as Henlow lost six wickets reaching their target in only 26.2 overs.

Henlow seconds, holders of the East Beds Shield junior section, were routed in this year's semi-finals.

They lost by nine wickets to Flitwick seconds at Cople on Monday night after posting 94-6 in their 13 eight-ball overs.

Teenager Lewis Sinclair achieved the rare feat of scoring a century in a Twenty 20 match - and it was against local rivals Clifton.
